FAQs - Using the TIA Business Directory

How can I locate relevant companies?

There are two methods to locate companies relevant to your needs.

The most efficient is to utilize the category/sub-category breakdown on the homepage and simply click on the sub-category that most closely relates to your query.

You may also use a keyword or location search to query the entire database of companies. A keyword or location search will pull from all data stored within the guide. You may also further refine your search queries via the category/sub-category drop down menu below the keyword search bar.

How can I locate courts, tennis programs, or games?

Please visit www.playtennis.com, the Tennis Industry Association's comprehensive resource to locate courts, facilities, coaches, and local games.

How does the RFP/RFI submission tool work?

Certain companies that have elected to include additional information about their products and services have "profile" pages accessible from search results via a "View Profile" link. This link only appears for companies that elect to create a "profile" page. These companies also provide access to an RFP/RFI submittal tool. This tool allows you to send them a request to bid on your business.

The tool requires that you submit your company name, contact information, and a description of products or services for which you are seeking a proposal.

While this tool can be helpful it is always quickest to pick up the phone and call the company directly, but we are happy to offer the RFP/RFI submission tool for your convenience.
